Water Nymphs

They carried purple sateen ribbons
furling and unfurling them into rays of sun,
dancing their way to the shimmering river.

Rivulets gurgled and tamed themselves
lily pads with pale green tendrils appeared,
pillows afloat in soothing cool waters.

Twirling through an iridescent aura,
stars dipped from darkening sky
entwined and crowned their flowing hair.

Bodies sprouted translucent wings
where once streams of violet furled
and their spirits soared.
